This wonderful property is ideal for a family holiday exploring the Yorkshire Heritage Coast and the North York Moors National Park.
Sea Breeze Cottage is a lovely terraced property, located in the quiet Hamlet of Cowbar, just a short walk away from the popular fishing village of Staithes, on the Yorkshire Heritage Coast. This beautiful former miners cottage, is set up on the hillside, just yards from the cliff tops, dating back to the 1800’s, and has now been lovingly renovated. The ground floor boasts a living room with a multi-fuel burner and views over the North York Moors, as well as a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely, bright, southfacing dining room/conservatory with great views over the surrounding countryside.
Cowbar is on the route of the Cleveland Way, and is just a short stroll down to a foot bridge which allows access over Staithes Beck, where you will find traditional pubs, restaurants and a museum. Sea Breeze Cottage is perfectly located for those wanting to get out and explore the Heritage Coast or the North York Moors.
With its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets, the town of Staithes was once one of the largest fishing ports on the north east coast and is now a well-loved base for exploring Yorkshire’s cliff top paths, and discovering the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach. Whitby is just a short drive away, and was made famous by its links to Bram Stokers ’Dracula’, and the haunting Abbey standing over this bustling fishing town. Keep an eye out for the many events and festivals that take place throughout the year such as the Goth Weekender, Steam Punk Festival and the Whitby Regatta, just to name a few. The area is a beach lovers paradise, with miles of golden sands and bays hidden all along this stunning coastline, such as Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay. Perfect for nature lovers, take a walk on the Cleveland Way, or head inland to explore the hundreds of designated walking routes through the National Park. Comprising over 1,400 miles of natural beauty, this enchanting region is home to heather moorland, pine forests and rolling hills, not to mention badgers, deer and hawks. Look closer and you’ll discover historic abbeys, castles, priories, traditional pubs and ’hidden’ villages and hamlets. Take to the trees on a rope swing in Dalby Forest, or hire a bike and explore a landscape of ruins, legends and endless horizons. For something different why not take the steam train from Whitby right into ’Heartbeat country’, or take a drive through some of the countries most amazing scenery. Beach ¼ mile.
